Police Violence Up, People Violence Down | CopBlock Radio

Published by:

Last night on CopBlock Radio, hosts Derrick J, DEO, and Severin started off the show with a good cop! He was called to a parking lot by a local business owner who complained about some teenagers “loitering.” He explains to them, while taking a relaxed, laid-back “cool guy” lean on his cruiser that he remembers being issued tickets as a young person, and he doesn’t want to be that guy giving young people tickets for stupid stuff like loitering. He asks that they please leave the private property unless they are customers and then takes time for questions. The conversation seems more “I’m on your level making a request” than “I’m your superior, and you will do what I say.” DEO points out that this law enforcer ultimately will use the tickets and the threats and force eventually if pushed, but I am just grateful that he has the decency to at least begin the interaction with a little bit of acknowledgement of the others’ humanity.

Cop Block RadioLast night on CopBlock Radio, Ademo Freeman and Brian Sumner joined us to share their newest adventure: traveling across the country in MAC (Mobile Accountability for Cops). They will be meeting up with CopBlock chapters in over a dozen states in the next seven months. Follow their adventures at http://CopBlock.org/MAC

Derrick J, DEO, and Severin covered the week’s most important stories of police abuse and accountability featured on CopBlock.org. We started out with a video of two San Francisco cops chatting freely in a Happy Donut shop about how they plan to alter the video captured by their body-cams. Then they laugh about how their victim’s head explodes from their bullets. Ha-ha, right? Good thing one quick-thinking man surreptitiously recorded their disgusting conversation for all to hear.

Cop-Suckers Say the Darndest Things | CopBlock Radio

Published by:

Have you ever encountered a person who just LOVES law enforcers, no matter what evil they do? In this episode of CopBlock Radio, Derrick J, DEO, Severin, and Ademo share the funniest encounters with these people, called CopSuckers. We hypothesize that these individuals are blinded by an emotional attachment to a friend or family member in law enforcement. Any criticism of the institution or individuals is rejected without consideration because it is seen as an attack on them or their loved ones. This is collectivism at its worst — refusal to acknowledge that individuals are responsible for their actions no matter the uniform they wear. Fortunately, encounters with these people can be as funny as they are revealing. Enjoy some of the best ones in this video: CopSuckers (Long Version) Download Podcast

CopBlocker Wins Settlement, Pepper Sprayed and Assaulted on Camera – CopBlock Radio

Published by:

Last night CopBlock Radio spoke with Adam Rupeka, a CopBlocker who was arrested and pepper sprayed for flipping a cops the bird. Police beat him to gain Adam’s compliance, but he heroically remained calm and peaceful. He sets a good example by recording the interaction with multiple devices, live-streaming, following the golden rule, calmly asserting himself, and refusing to submit to arbitrary demands by badged individuals. Eventually Adam’s charges of “disorderly conduct” and “obstructing government administration” were thrown out, and instead he was awarded a settlement outside of court.
